The Wang lab at OUHSC Department of Medicine, Division of Endocrinology, and Harold Hamm Diabetes Center, is seeking highly motivated postdoctoral researchers in the area of diabetes research and drug discovery. The position can start immediately. The candidates will study the roles of several novel genes and chemicals we recently identified in pancreatic beta cell biology, insulin resistance, and other aspects in the pathogenesis of diabetes. Molecular and cellular biology and biochemical techniques as well as transgenic/knockout mouse models will be utilized for these studies. A Ph.D. in Biochemistry, Molecular or Cell Biology, Pharmacology or related field is required. Strong expertise in molecular and cellular biology, protein biochemistry, or experience with mouse models of diabetes or of metabolic disorders is preferred.
Candidates must be self-driven, highly motivated and well organized. Must be able to multi-task and solve problems creatively, with the ability to work independently as well as cooperatively with a team. Excellent oral and written communication skills are required. Candidates with fresh Ph.D. or within 1-2 years of post-doctoral experience and first-author publications are preferred.
